Hansel has been with us about about a week’s time, he has very quickly adjusted to us and our expectations/routines.

He thrives on consistency and knowing his boundaries. He is housebroken, and gives good signals when he needs to go outside. He is sleeping through the night in his kennel in our bedroom. He loves getting lots of exercise, and does really well on a leash. We’ve been taking him on 3-4 walks a day, and he’d make an excellent running buddy for someone!

He’d love a fenced yard, but does well on a tie-out too. Right now he’s the only pet in the house, but seems to be very interested in other furry animals, and might like a friend in his forever home! It also might help his unease at being left alone when his humans go to work.

He’s a puppy, so consistent work on not biting, and not getting overly excited is important. He shouldn’t be given plush toys, or he’ll show you how good and fast he is with destroying them!

He is such a LOVER, and wants to be right where all the action is. He often wants to be touching the human that’s nearby, and it’s so sweet. I’ve never seen a more observant dog.

He enjoys sitting outside and noticing birds, planes, even the tiniest ant. Hansel is going to be a great adventure buddy, who will show his family unconditional love for years to come.

* Puppies under 5 months should not be left alone for more than 4 hours at a time to help them with potty training and socialization.

*The pet you are viewing is a rescued pet which is most often from an animal control facility and does not come with a pedigree. The breed(s) listed are our best guess and are in no way guaranteed. Sometimes the pets appear to be a particular breed(s) in the pictures we receive from our rescue partners and when they arrive we are surprised to see an entirely different breed(s) in person!  If you choose to DNA test your adopted pet, test results may vary from company to company and our breed guess may not be reflected in those results as it is just that, our best guess. It is with deep longing that we wish there was a breed called "cute" as we believe all of our dogs would fall under this new breed classification!

Completion of an Adoption Application via our website www.midwestanimalrescue.org is the best way to show your interest in an animal and is the first step in our adoption process. 

*Animals who are not fully vaccinated and altered are not eligible for long distance adoption.

When you adopt a pet from Midwest Animal Rescue and Services, your adoption fee covers: Microchip and registration, Core Vaccines including Rabies, Distemper and bordetella, age appropriate heartworm testing or FeLV-FIV testing, sterilization, heartworm/flea-tick prevention and deworming while in foster care. 

Adoption fees are non-negotiable and can be paid by cashier's check, money order or credit card. We do not accept personal checks.

Any issues that arise after adoption are the full responsibility of the adopter after the finalization of adoption. Adoption fees are only part of the expense of owning a pet, so we ask you to consider the costs for the life of the pet before adoption. We recommend pet insurance.
